Q: [...] OS X's Preview can also display metadata, albeit a more limited subset (under Tools > Show Inspector). However, you can't see embedded font information with Preview.

I recently bought a MacBook Pro (with ‘Retina’ screen), but when I hooked it up to my Dell U2410 monitor via HDMI cable I was shocked by the poor picture quality. The contrast was all wrong and text was misshapen. No amount of calibration in the monitor or software would fix it. [...]

[SOLVED] [EVEN FireFox, LibreOffice] Font config is a pain in the (Page 1) / Installation / Arch Linux Forums
Boy owe boy, I have been useing Archlinux for . . . like 3 years now, and I have never been able to get the fonts to look right. I was useing OpenSuse for school for a month or too, and man fonts CAN look really good on Linux.
I know Arch is the best because I set it all up (and other reasons) but it sure would be nice if there was a package that just installed a set of good fonts and 'configured them'. Anyone have some scripts that they use to get them looking good?

The DPI is calculated based on the size in millimeters of the screen and the width and height. We have verified that the DPI reported by nxagent to its clients always matches the DPI reported by the real X server, but still we get different fonts inside nxagent and on the real display.
